Anyone have a modified BIOS for the P8Z68-V/GEN3 with a full set of updated OROMs that's confirmed working? Every link I've come across has been dead...

Edit 1: Managed to inject the latest available NVMe module on my own, and get it flashed without issue. Going to try natively booting from NVMe on this board soon!
Edit 2: And I'm now booting from a 1TB NVMe drive. Works perfectly

I'm starting to wonder if my P8Z68 is fatally wounded.

It was fine when I went to bed. I left the PC on.

When I came back this morning, no monitor, no usb keyboard, no usb mouse. They would not respond and the kb/mouse did not have "power".

I held my power button down to force shutdown the PC and then booted it back up. Still no keyboard, no mouse, no display...but, the PC is booting into windows. I have sound and get the welcome to windows sound.

I have tried different USB ports.
I have powered down and unplugged it for 30 seconds and plugged back in, no change.
I have powered down and flipped the power switch on the back of the PSU, no change.
I have removed my 1080ti and plugged the monitor into the motherboard (hdmi), no change.

The PSU is newer than everything else. About 8 months old. Bought it when I bought the (used) 1080ti.

I'm planning on next unplugging my hard drives so it quits booting to windows and so I don't have to force shutdown the OS anymore.

Then removing the CMOS battery and/or resetting using jumpers.

Otherwise, I'm out of ideas.

So to sum up: no usb support, no display but system is booting to windows.

Time to suck it up and build a new pc?

An 8 yr build?

• Hi, I just got a replacement for my old ASUS Maximus V Gene that I was using with my i7 3770K

• I now have the ASUS P8P67 (Rev1.02) as it says on the motherboard.

Q.1) The latest BIOS is v3602 from 2012, is there anything newer?

Q.2) For the Maximus board we had a tool that would allow us to manually update the modules in the BIOS, does this work here?
(This is the thread) (https://rog.asus.com/forum/showthrea...pdated-Modules)

• I've run through the motherboard, and have a stable clock similar to the Gene board, although there are some minor things.

Q.3) Is it still recommended to get the manually updated INF/Chipsets like I used to? I was previously using (v13.1.0.1058 (2014)) as that was most performant.
(This is the thread) (https://www.win-raid.com/t25f23-Whic...D-drivers.html)

• I have disabled USB3.0 / Onboard Audio / etc,... As I don't use them.

Q.4) On the ASUS Support/Driver page it states that it has "Realtek LAN" is this true, or do we actually have an Intel LAN Chip? Can I use the Intel Driver?
Currently the only drivers I have installed are NVIDIA, UniXonar, C++/DX and then let Win10 handle the rest. (Win7 was a lot more different.)

Is there anything else I should know?

Hey yall!

By way of update, my Asus P8Z68 V-Pro Gen3 is STILL rolling, together with my delidded 3770k thats had 1.45v pushed through it at 4.7ghz for 2.5 years.

However, my swiftech H320x2 is making a ton of pump noise, unless the pump is running on minimum duty cycle. so far I have been able to set the BIOS that it stays at 800rpm until the CPU hits 70c. so at all times when running under 70c its whisper quiet.

sadly, at 1.45v 4700mhz, I often hit 70c while gaming. Is there any other way to manually set the bios to force the pump RPM to 800RPM even if the mobo detects the CPU hitting 70c? Thanks!
